Hello Dirk,

I mean you can do a "zypper dup" using 13.1 repos:

Somehow that is not working for me, the repository is not recognized by
YaST. I compared it to the working 12.3 repo and notice that 12.3 has a
repo/oss/suse/repodata/ directory, which 13.1 is lacking.

whats the output of zypper lr --details ? is it detecting the repo as
yast style? Unfortunately the default type is repomd, which will then

My 12.3 repo (previously updated from 12.2) was fact of type rpm-md.

Verbose version of what I said above: The YaST repository module refuses
to let me the change the URL by s/12\.3/13\.1/g, so I don't get new lr
--details output that way. Editing the /etc/zypp/repos.d/ .repo file
manually, I can do s/type=rpm-md/type=yast2/ but then it complains:

File '/media.1/media' not found on medium

The solution to that is to drop "suse/" from the baseurl= line, then it

So it seems the original user "error" was to not remove the trailing
suse/ part, with which it does not recognize the repository as valid.

Is there any upgrade guide where this is or could be documented for the
benefit of others running into that?
